Jane Elson Class

Welcome to Jane Elson (Year 5):

Hello,

Within this section of the website, you will find useful information you (or your child) may need for their learning; including information on trips, P.E days, homework, timetables and much more.

Meet the team:

Mr Tyson

Miss Dixon

 

Our Day

8:45 am: Learning begins! The gate will be open from 8.35am and children may come straight to the classroom from this time ready to start lessons at 8.45am.

10:30 am: Break time

12:15 pm: End of morning session.

1:00 pm: Afternoon session begins.

3:15 pm: End of school day. The children have been reminded not to leave school if they cannot see their adult, please inform us if somebody different is collecting your child from school.

 

Reading:

Children are expected to read at home on a daily basis and complete 5 reading entries in their reading journal as part of their homework routine. 

We do ask that children read every night for at least 10 minutes.

The UK government’s Education Research Standards Team tells us, Evidence suggests that there is a positive relationship between reading frequency, reading enjoyment and attainment.”

All children who record 3 entries into their reading journal each week will automatically receive a house-point token for the weekly competition and children who record 5 entries will receive 3 house-point tokens. 

Children are welcome to select books from the class library or choose their own from home and can be changed any time. Books should be brought into school every day.

Key Information:

P.E: This is a crucial part of the curriculum and one in which all children should participate. All children in the school will have two hours of timetabled sport and P.E per week. If your child is unable to take part (due to a medical reason) please provide a note. Our P.E. days will be on Tuesday (Indoor P.E) and Thursday (Outdoor P.E - football). Children are allowed to wear suitable P.E kit to school on these days and remain in their P.E kit all day. Please remember that all long hair needs to be tied back and earrings removed. It would be beneficial that children come to school on those days without earrings in if possible, please. 

As we are currently playing football in our outdoor PE, children will need to bring a change of shoes on that day to change into as it is very muddy. Football boots are great, as are old trainers you don't mind getting mucky. 

 

Homework:
Homework is given out weekly in year 5. It is both given out and collected in every Friday.
For maths this will often be in the form of an activity on MyMaths.

We will also set weekly spellings to be learnt at home. These spellings will be tested on a Friday.

Please encourage your child to read as much as possible outside of school. It would be useful for all children to read a range of genres and authors over the course of the year as this will develop their knowledge and understanding substantially. We expect all children to complete at least three reading entries per week and hope that children in our class will aim even higher than this and possibly target five entries per week. Children who complete five entries will be entered into our weekly prize draw.


Upcoming School Visit: TBC.

Curriculum Outline:

Summer 1 2024:
The first summer term is a very exciting one! We are will be studying the topic ‘Crime and Punishment’ during this half term in History where will look at the what Crime and Punishment means and what it looked like at different periods throughout time. 

This term we will be continuing our previous Ancient Greek theme by reading ‘Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief’ in our whole class reading sessions.

In English, we're looking at 'Crime and punishment through the ages' and then 'Living things and their habitats (magazine article about an animal and its habitat)'.

In maths we will be looking area and perimeter, statistics and then shape. 

In science, we'll be finishing the wide topic of forces before starting the topic of Properties and Changes of Materials

Finally In P.E, we will be trying our hand at Dance (indoors - Tuesday) and Athletics (outdoors - Thursday). All jewelry must be removed before PE, we advise it isn't brought into school at all on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

As we are currently playing football in our outdoor PE, children will need to bring a change of shoes on that day to change into as it is very muddy. Football boots are great, as are old trainers you don't mind getting mucky.

Homework (W/B: 8/7/24):  

Spellings: 

In Year 5 we are slightly changing how we conduct our spellings. Each week, we will practice 10 Year 5 spellings as a whole class. In addition to these spellings, Ms Dickson and I both have a spelling intervention group on a Monday, where we will give the children additional spellings to learn, which can be found below. On a Friday, children will be tested on all 20. Ideally, I'd like all children to practice all 20 words. If that's not possible, please concentrate on the spellings from your group - if you're not in a spellings intervention group, focus on the 10 year 5 words. I hope this make sense.
